"Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire." - St. Catherine of Siena

In this video, Sarah Hart sits down with Ben Walther to discuss his new song, Ablaze. As you are sealed with the truth, so may you seal the truth in your heart. Write God’s word upon your soul, and know you belong. May you walk ever in the Lord, may you walk ever in the Lord. 

Inspired by the wisdom of St. Catherine of Siena, Ben Walther composed an upbeat song to encourage today’s generation to set the world on fire with God’s love.

Energetic and uplifting, the song describes that we each have a unique mission; a set of blueprints for our lives. We may not see the plan right now, but once you we do, we will set the world ablaze. The song would be perfect for Sending Forth, or as a closing song at a youth rally or convention.

“By his grace we are conceived to be mercy, to be peace, to be light amidst the darkness. In his image we are made, to be brilliant, to be great, to present the world his likeness,
All aflame but not consumed, we are burning with the truth, for his presence makes us holy, fanning flickering to flame till his love is what remains; for to him belongs all glory.
Let’s set the world on fire, let’s raise his banner higher. Let’s set a broken world ablaze. Oh. Let’s hear a generation proclaiming his salvation with every breath and endless praise; and set the world ablaze.
Set the world ablaze.”
